It seems as if this last month has been one big test!
You know... to see if I could handle stress,
make the right choices, multi-task,
and just plain "get through it".
So, you probably know that my hubby
was offered a job in Dubai. And for a minute,
we were all ready to go. The twins were considering
leaving their friends & their current life for 1 year...
and we would return their Junior year of High School.
Then soon after that, THEY changed their mind!!!
My daughter said that trying out for Drill Team Officer
was more important to her than traveling. :)
So on to Plan B: The hubby would move to Dubai
without us... and I would live in our house with the kids.
Within days, my hubby was off to Dubai. He had meeting
after meeting, toured the city & check out the housing.
And secretly, I was a nervous wreck. (But didnt have the heart
to tell him). I knew the job was his if he wanted it.
He just had to say 'yes'.
In the mean time, we continued on with the try-out process
for drill team officer. What a lengthy process!!
Several days went by & I was still unsure of what
my future was going to be. Until, I got the call... and
the hubby said he had DECLINED the job!!! :)
He said he couldn't stand the thought of being away
from us. And that he didn't want to miss anything.
(Out of the blue, my hubby came home w/ this truck...
for our son. What the hell?? LOL pic of Kody driving McKayla
around the school parking lot after try-outs last night)
So, try-outs were last night. And from the pics,
you can probably see that SHE MADE IT!!! :)
So, starting in August, we'll be at the big H.S. stadium
every Friday night watching the varsity football game
& waiting for the half time show.
That's when she'll perform. :)
She said last night, "I dont know what I'm most excited for...
going to Officer camp this summer, getting an Officer locker,
the fact that my shirts will say 'squad leader' or
because my name will be announced at
each varsity football game!"
(she'll get to tip her hat to the crowd as she is announced)
As for me, I'll be happy that my lil' family will all
be together! I guess Texas is where God wants us. :)
